Athena (or Clydesdale)
I don’t really think of myself as fat. I don’t really think about it at all. I worry about what I can do, not my shape. But I have just realized (had it pointed out to me) that I fall into the size range for plus sized female athletes. I don’t know how to take that. In case you are wondering, a 150+ lbs woman (or 200+ lbs on a man) is considered an “Athena” (or Clydesdale) cyclist.
It doesn’t hurt my pride any, I am fine with my body. I just had a moment of surprise. No wonder so many women are
afraid of alienated by sporting goods store.
My 150+ lbs still fit into a size 8 pair of Levis.
I am the average size at mommy’s group.
What the heck? How do you ever expect women to join a sport if you start out by telling them they aren’t normal?
